We are having issues with our Smartstrand carpet developing long "wrinkles". We had it installed a little over a year ago. The initial shedding subsided shortly after we vacuumed a couple times, and we have no issues with our vacuum not working with the carpet. (We have a Dyson Animal vac which is awesome.) Does anyone else out there have problems with their Smartstrand wrinkling?

I am very unsatisfied with Mohawk carpet. The company does not stand behind their guarantee. I had my carpet down a year and it looks like it has been down 10 years. I did all the company asked and they still would not honor the wear policy.

"Very Bad Carpet"
We purchased Mohawk carpet in August 2012. Within in four months the carpet was showing wear in any traffic area. In front of our chairs it looked worse than the carpet we had taken up that had been down for eleven years. This was a top notch carpet with a supposedly 15 year pattern resistant warranty. What a joke! Pattern completely worn in several places but they said this was not a problem with the carpet. Never purchase any Mohawk! They will not stand behind the warranty at all. Fortunately for us we have a wonderful dealer who is replacing the carpet at her own expense. Most will not be that fortunate. Have owned homes for over thirty-five years and this is the worst carpet ever!!!

"Comercial dew drop"
I have had my carpet down for 16 months. It has been a nightmare,first the carpet had white lines all across it,the company sent Stanley Steamer out the workmen had a helper that tracked grease all over it.They had to use alot of chemicals to get it out.The lines were removed. It has been 16 months and I started seeing these worn looking spots in traffic areas. I Contacted the company where I purchased it and they contacted Mohawk and they said I had to have it professional cleaned for the warranty to be good. I had this done.There was no change. Home Depot came out and took pictures of it and sent to Mahauk and they still won't stand behind the warranty on the wear. I will never buy anything from Mahauk again. They do not stand behind the warrenty.

"Mohawk's Five-Year Warranty is a Joke"
The carpet in my home is three years old. As I was vacuuming a few months ago (December to be exact), the berber carpet snagged and ripped up an entire long thread. I do not have pets, nor have I ever walked on the carpet with heels. Therefore, the snag was due to a manufacturing defect. My carpet installer just informed me (after a very lengthy claims process that they had to handle because nobody in Mohawk's claims department would help me) that Mohawk Flooring will honor the five-year warranty. However, it does not cover labor and, to make matters worse, is prorated! My total compensation? $34.10! I will never, ever install Mohawk Flooring due to its shoddy quality and even worse customer service.

Do not buy Mohawk Superstrand carpet. Your back will kill you after trying to vacuum it. I am so frustrated with this $5,000.00 purchase.

"DO NOT BUY SMART STRAND MOHAWK CARPET"
Do not buy smart strand silk carpet. I had this carpet installed in December in my guest bedroom. Worst mistake ever! I happened to accidently get a corner of it slightly damp. I immediately noticed the carpet becoming limp. The next day I noticed the backing peeling apart! Called the store I bought it from, they called the representative. Of course the rep said it was not a defect! What a nightmare if I had kids or pets! Waiting to hear from the rep again!

My wife and I were elated upon stepping bare foot onto our new mohawk smart strand carpeting, you've just never walked on anything as soft-silky- plush before! It didn't take long, however, for our opinion to turn to bewilderment and irritation as I pulled our new dyson vac out and tried to vacuum it, omg! Brutal! Tried all the mohawk suggested vac's, no way! Searched multiple websites, including youtube,( where I found a video showing a man vacuuming his smart strand with a canister vac, quite easily. Problem was that when I looked up the brand vac he was using. It cost more than $600.00. I found other vac's guaranteeing to work just as good, their cost was between $800.00-$1,000.00! Insane! Seriously exchanging the smart strand for something else, but I'm very happy to say that we decided that we just loved it too much. Our feet screamed, no, please don't! Well, I can say that everything turned out just fine...in the form of two relatively inexpensive brand vac'S. We had a portable, rechargeable, hand held shark cordless 18 volt, model sv780 n1 14, with a power brush head. It turned out to be great for vacuuming small areas. The real answer was to be my trying my 4.5hp wet/dry shop vac, for vacuuming the entire carpets, very easily. The long wand and light head worked very well. I think I paid $89.00 for it. Problem completely and happily solved and I'm back to loving my smart strand again! I'm planning on going one better by buying a newer 6.5hp shop vac. The increased suction should be perfect!

I would never Buy Mohawk Again... Thank you Robert messick Ron As you know we purchased Mohawk Carpet from you on 11/11/2011.

"SmartStrand Silk a BIG disappointment"
This carpet looks pretty and feels soft, but there is no cushion feel when you walk on it (installed with Mohawk recommended pad). Our old Sharp vacuum and a new vacuum (I.E. Hoover Wind Tunnel T-Series)on the Mohawk recommended list don't work - too difficult to push. Very expensive carpet and doesn't look as good or clean as well as our 23- year old living room carpet. Carpet loops keep coming out of carpet just walking on it (just two of us and no pets). Mohawk did not post the polite review I submitted to their website.
